My Kind Of Fruit Cake

I recently planted a strawberry plant in a pot on our balcony and was curious to see if I could get any strawberries out of it. To my surprise, the plant has done really well and has already produced some delicious strawberries. This inspired me to make a strawberry flavored cake. When thinking about how I was going to decorate it, I thought what better way than to make it look exactly how it tastes.

To fill the strawberry cake, I used a combination of strawberry buttercream and dark chocolate ganache. I don't make too many cakes without chocolate and this was no exception. It reminded me of chocolate covered strawberry! Lastly, I couldn't finish this post without including a picture of my inspirational plant. I hope I will be enjoying its strawberries all summer!
